This trick was inspired by a similar system at the New York Times which I stumbled on by accident.

I’m still trying to figure out what to do with this, or other uses it might be put to. Please do comment and let me know what you think.

Highlight any word here

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves / Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: / All mimsy were the borogoves, / And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son! / The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! / Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun / The frumious Bandersnatch!”
